#32 – Flip by Martyn Bedford


Few words can describe Flip with justice, so I am not going to try.  Taken from the inside jacket flap:

One morning fourteen-year-old Alex wakes up to find himself in the wrong bedroom, in an unfamiliar house, in a different part of the country.  Six months have disappeared overnight. The family at the breakfast table?  Total strangers.

This will undoubtedly be the shortest review I will ever have the privilege of writing. Whatever the top prize is each year for young adult literature, Martyn Bedford has written the year’s unquestionable winner.

Bedford’s writing, brilliant and captivating, is the reason I read and review whatever comes my way.  It is the golden nugget.  These pages will stick to your fingers, begging to be turned, until all that is left are blank fillers.

Your mind will not let go, even then.  I am stunned – at what I just now finished reading.  It is purely magic to be led down an unfamiliar and unbelievable path, and find one’s self believing to the end.

  1. Yes, it would. There is nothing other than family relationships and sci-fi. I will tell you this, the main character wakes up and has found himself in another teen’s body with his own mind and vice versa. His goal is to return to his own family. No hard language or sexual themes.
